The Symphony regularly performs numerous concerts and shows every season. These include over hundred and forty classical, educational, pops and family concerts. Outreach concerts like the support concert for the Virginia Opera as well as the Virginia Arts Festival are also the highlights of each season. Venues like the Chrysler Hall in Norfolk and Newport News’ Ferguson Center for the Arts have showcased some of the most memorable performances by the Symphony.
The history of the Orchestra dates back to 1920 when the Virginia Symphony was known as the Norfolk Symphony. At that time it had a very important position in the areas as it was the only one present between the cities of Baltimore and Atlanta. For almost half a decade, the Orchestra grew in the hands of music directors like Walter Edward Howe, Henry Cowles Whitehead and Edgar Schenkman. In 1966 Russell Stanger took over the responsibility of the Orchestra’s art director. During his time the orchestra faced the impact of the major recession of seventies. The shutdown of many other Orchestras of the similar scale pushed for a merger. The Symphony took form when the merger of the Norfolk Symphony, the Virginia Beach Pops Symphony and the Peninsula Symphony Orchestra happened in 1979. Stanger spent great amount of time initially running the Norfolk Orchestra. After the merger, he worked hard on restructuring it and creating some of the most memorable seasons ever conducted by the symphony.
From 1980–1986 Richard Williams, steered the Virginia Symphony. Winston Dan Vogel came after him and served the orchestra for the next four years. Joann Falletta was probably the best thing ever happened to the Orchestra. She was appointed in 1991 as the eleventh director of the Symphony. Once Falletta took over the Symphony overhauled itself for good. This Grammy Award winning Music Director has led the orchestra to new heights. The Virginia Symphony became a part of the International Conference of Symphony and Opera Musicians in 2000. This meant that it was officially a member of the major league of symphony orchestras.
Joann Falletta has been with the Symphony for more than two decades now. She has brought innovation, strength and energy to each work presented by her team and herself. Two of the famed concerts that highlight the strengths of the orchestra are the Barber's First Symphony and Elgar's Enigma Variations. These shows are present refined music section by section an also as a whole. Falletta’s charm, presence, demonstration and conduct are simply grand in these concerts. They achieved very strong results when the richness of the composition could be felt in bits. The concerts became noted for warm string sounds and exceptional play of the wind and the brass.
Falletta has also worked wonders at the premier of the Adolphus Hailstork's Piano Concerto. This show in New York was a showcase of neo-Romantic music. Loaded with some of the most attractive melodies and rhythm it showed of great technical expertise. Falletta guided soloist Leon Bates in the ruminative lyrical and bravura scoring sections like a born maestro. The show has done remarkably well since it was opened to public.
Falleta continues to create and conduct a very artistic forty two week long season that starts each year in September and ends in June.
